The breakfast nook is a room just off of the kitchen or a part of the kitchen where you place the kitchen table. This set of furniture is sometimes called the breakfast nook set. Dining furniture for the kitchen is often less formal than dining furniture for a dining room. As a result there are several different options when it comes to the kitchen nook seating arrangements. This article will discuss some of those options. Of course, most homeowners use a combination of more than one type of seating described here. The most obvious form of breakfast nook seating is chairs. Individual chairs are most commonly used in sets with a small kitchen table that sits two to four people. The smaller tables work better with chairs. The chairs for your kitchen table can be any style you can imagine. For small café style dining sets you might find iron rod chairs. For tall pub style tables, you might find tall stools. Alternatively, you might find traditional dining room furniture with carved wooden chairs with high backs.
The style is probably the most important factor when it comes to finding the perfect modern kitchen nook set. Some decorators will give generalizations like you cannot use bench seating in a modern kitchen and that is simply not true. Benches can have a place in a modern nook if they are done right. The only general rule that applies universally to all modern furniture is that the lines and design need to be simple. The table and chairs will have simple straight legs rather than ornately carved ones. The tops of breakfast nook chairs and benches will be straight lines rather than arched ones.
Perhaps the most obvious difference between the formal dining furniture and kitchen furniture is that there are no benches in the formal room. Breakfast nook benches are quite common. In fact, the corner breakfast nook set is particularly popular with many homeowners. Benches offer many advantages of chair seating. First, you can seat more people in the same amount of square footage. Generally you can fit one and a half people on a bench for every chair that you replace. In addition, under the seat storage compartments give homeowners places to store things that they want to have conveniently located close to the kitchen without actually taking up valuable counter or cabinet space.
